Is this a good breeder?

Does anyone know anything about Nevena Havanese in Las Vegas? Everything looks good on the website, and there are great testimonials, but I'm looking for confirmation from somebody not on the website. I would have to fly in to pick up a puppy, so couldn't visit in advance. Thanks for your help!

Well, they say they do all the proper testing, which is good. But they have a AWFUL lot of puppieS! I counted 19. That is a LOT of puppies to be properly socialized and raised in the way I'd want my puppy raised.

Thanks for your input. She says they are all raised in the family room. Did you read the testimonials?

Yes, and she clearly has some happy clients. But no one ever posts the "unhappy" e-mails either.

Exactly! That's why it's so hard to totally trust a web-site, and why I was hoping for some first-hand knowledge! Do you know of any breeders that you trust on the west coast?

I DO!

But I'd like to know exactly what you mean by "west coast"? That's a pretty broad question. What city/state are you from? That's usually a good starting point.

Yes, there are several excellent west coat breeders.
